Mr. X Nightmare the games new DLC is due to get support on Linux with Windows PC for Streets of Rage 4. Thanks to the publisher and co-developer Dotemu with co-developers Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games. The current build is available on Steam and GOG.

The Mr. X Nightmare highly anticipated DLC for the smash hit Streets of Rage 4 is coming to Linux. Fans are also treated to a big free update separate from the DLC. This brings several cool new features and enhancements to the game.

So, as the story goes, I had a few back and forth email with Dotemu. Previously on SteamDB, there was supposed to be full cross-platform support. Well…

I’m happy to announce that we’ll have a playable version for Linux pretty soon!

In an early email, Dotemu outlined that there was only Windows PC support. That the details on SteamDB are to be corrected. According to a recent reply, it looks like a native port will also be in the mix “soon”. So the email inquiry has spawned interesting with the right people.

  • Playable New Fighters: Introducing the playable debut of powerful officer Estel Aguirre. Along with the awaited return of fully realized playable versions of Max Thunder and Shiva. Both beloved characters of Streets of Rage 2 and Streets of Rage 3.
  • Survival Mode: An inventive, immensely replayable challenge where fighters beat down endless waves of foes in the Mr. X Nightmare DLC. All while earning perks for as long as they can stay alive. The Random version of this mode keeps each fight unpredictable through generated runs. As a result, the Weekly version has a series of static gauntlets generated each week. So that it keeps players on their toes as they brawl their way through the streets of rage. Fighting for the top spot. Each completed level offers a choice of randomized stackable perks to choose from.
  • New Moves: Braving Survival’s onslaughts also permanently unlocks new moves for use across any of Streets of Rage 4’s modes. This allows players to personalize movelists for their favorite characters. Even Retro characters now have new moves.
  • New Badass Weaponry: Progress unlocks devastating new weapons within the incoming training mode. Mr. X Nightmare brings a gallery content.
  • Leaderboards Show Who’s the Boss: The mode’s leaderboards keep track of the community’s well-fought runs too; who will be Wood Oak City’s finest fighter?
  • New Tunes: Keep groovin’ with original music from Tee Lopes (Sonic ManiaLeague of Legends).
  • And Wait, There’s Even Moaaar: A separate free update adding an in-depth training system. Color palette options, a fiendish New Mania+ difficulty. Plus a wealth of refinements and balancing changes addressing feedback from Streets of Rage 4’s passionate community.
